John Perry Nursery is a purpose built one story building located in the grounds of John Perry primary school. We have 3 spacious classrooms, babies 0-2 years, toddlers 2-3 years and pre school 3-5 years. We are also lucky enough to have a large sensory room full of stimulating activities which allows all children to learn through exploring and investigating. In addition to our sensory room we have a soft play area which allows the children to interact in a fun and safe environment. The nursery has 2 large gardens one for baby room and the other for 2-5’s, both gardens are fitted with safety surfacing, artificial grass and have a canopied area. They are fully equipped with plenty of age appropriate resources. Being on one level allows the children to free flow easily between the classrooms and gardens. We are also fortunate enough to have a large grassed natural area to the front of the nursery which has a gazebo for the children to enjoy picnics and sports events.
